Exhaust headache

I recently purchased a prowler 1000 but while riding it there seems to be a back up of exhaust into the cab or an exhaust leak that is filling in the cab. Was curious if anyone else has this issue or if I need a new exhaust pipe or extend the current one out behind the unit?
Thanks guys

Exhaust should already be behind the rear wheels, I'd look for any signs on an exhaust leak, missing springs, or loose flange bolts. on the entire exhaust system .also If you are running a solid windshield you may be experiencing back flow into the cab.

Yeah I am running a full windshield so thatís what I was wondering if other people experienced the same issues and if a possible kick out on the exhaust pipe to the side would be better or if someone had a easy solution

Directing it out the side may help. Some windshields have vents to help eliminate the back draft, and they do help! I run a factory safety glass windshield that has vents, plus I added a top scoop above the windshield to bring more air into the cab.

What about the back windshield do you think that might eliminate the problem? Either way I appreciate the input

These back window setups are still available for the older square tube Prowlers on ebay.

I also have a split front windshield and noticed lots of backdraft into the cab. Not so much exhaust fumes, but really noticed the snow swirling into the cab. A lexan rear windshield came with the machine and we put it on in hopes of some improvement. It is like night and day for no backdraft issues now. I've wondered how that real fine netting would do such as this one I saw on eBay..... https://www.ebay.com/itm/182810389465

These things do move a lot of air! I have the safety glass factory windshield with the slide vents. They help. but really don't provide much air in the cab. I ended up putting a scoop on top of the front rollbar that catches the air coming off the windshield. Cut the top to fit around it and it works pretty good!
